Hi Marie,

You could qualify for SSDI with asthma, you can schedule an appointment at your local SSA office to do so.

Hi Jennifer,

Not for your height alone. But if your ankle and wrist problems are severe enough that you think it will prohibit you from working for a year, you could qualify for SSDI benefits.

Hi Laurie,

Depending on the severity of Syncope you may qualify. You can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to find out if your case may qualify.

Hi Veronica,

If you are simply 4'11" and have no other physical conditions that prohibit you from working, you will not qualify for SSDI benefits.
